One of the largest developments in South Florida, The Pomp is a 223-acre project currently under construction 35 miles north of Miami and less than 10 miles north of Fort Lauderdale. Once complete, the project — anchored by Live! at The Pomp — will bring together entertainment, dining, hotel, retail, residential, office and lifestyle amenities, alongside the successful Harrah’s Pompano Beach casino, in one world-class destination. The development’s name, The Pomp, honors the local history and pays homage to the beloved former Pompano Park racetrack located on the project site. With the newly remodeled and rebranded Harrah’s Pompano Beach and Live! entertainment anchor at its core, The Pomp will feature 1.3 million square feet of retail and entertainment space, 4,000 luxury residential units, two hotels and 1.35 million square feet of Class A office space upon completion.

Along with Live! at The Pomp and Harrah’s Pompano Beach, Topgolf will also anchor the Pompano Beach development with their eighth Florida location. The future Topgolf venue will invite players to enjoy the brand’s technology-driven modern golf experience to play point-scoring golf games in an energetic and fun environment. The venue will feature 102 outdoor climate-controlled hitting bays equipped with Topgolf’s signature ball-tracking technology, along with a full-service restaurant, top-shelf drinks, rooftop terrace, a patio, music, private event space and year-round family-friendly programming. Currently under construction, Topgolf is expected to open late 2023.

In Florida, Cordish was the original development partner of the Seminole Tribe of Florida for Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa, two of the most successful casino entertainment resorts in the world. Further demonstrating their strong commitment to the State of Florida, Cordish recently opened Vivo!, a 62,000-square-foot dining and entertainment experience in Miami, and will open a 36,000-square-foot immersive dining and entertainment district at The Pointe Orlando, near major theme parks and across the street from the Orange County Convention Center, next year.
